Over Coffee | 2.1.15

Sunday, February 1

For your consideration:

>> I'm stocking up: Some British chocolates will soon no longer be available in the U.S.

>> I can get behind this: Emma Watson has signed on to play Belle in a live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.

>> A dose of inspiration: Authors always know the right thing to say.1

>> When to use 'em: JPEGs vs. PNGs.2

>> Who names their kid Lord Voldemort?: What it's like to share your name with Harry Potter's villain.3

>> Well, I'll be: Coffee drunk from a white mug tastes more bitter.

>> Hear, hear: The real reason why U.S. adaptations of Brit TV shows are often crap rarely succeed.

>> I'm so doing this next time I stay in a hotel: Requesting Nicholas Cage photos in your hotel room is a thing now.4

Also on my mind:

And now, your moment of GIF:

  6. It's hard not to love Krieger, even though he's basically a psychopath.

  11. You're welcome! I only knew that .pngs could be saved with transparent backgrounds and .jpgs couldn't, so I often use .pngs for online stuff. I was doing the correct thing quite by accident, haha.
